This is a wonderful recipe that goes back years, the addition of orange juice seems to bring out the flavour --- to save time you can even cook the potatoes a day ahead, and this may easily be doubled or even tripled to serve a large dinner party --- this is so delicious! :)

I used your recipe for Thanksgivng. I mashed the sweet potatoes with the spices so my granddaugthers would eat them but I forgot to add the orange juice. Everyone said how much they liked them and I didn't have leftovers. Next time I will have to remember the orange juice. Thanks Kittencal. Bullwinkle
